Three leaders of the Islamic Jihad terror group have been killed in an Israeli nighttime attack in the Gaza Strip. At least three other people were killed and an unknown number injured in the airstrikes.
Israel holds the three killed commanders responsible for rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip against Israel. Attacks have been back and forth since the death of a Palestinian hunger striker on Tuesday last week. Khader Adnan succumbed after 87 days without food in protest of his detention.
In addition to the attacks on the leaders, the Israeli army also carries out actions against Islamic Jihad training camps. Fearing counter-attacks, Israel has urged residents within 40 kilometers of Gaza to stay away from bomb shelters.
